Our Clara Laforest's are close in birth dates, but not the same. Here is what's in my database. Excuse the formatting...this is the first time I've gotten a successful transfer from Family Tree Maker's genealogy report to something I can use in Word.

As you can see, she lived and died in Michigan's western U.P. It looks to me that 2 generations up from hers was the last time they used "dit": Laforest dit Labranche. You said your family's alias was Laforest dit Tineau.

I'm sure we're related, just different branches (pun intended) ;-)

       1. Clara E Laforest, born April 19, 1886 in Calumet, Michigan; died July 29, 1969 in Lake Linden, Michigan. She was the daughter of 2. Dosithee Laforest and 3. Marie Melina Daniel. She married (1) David Duchemin June 01, 1909. He was born June 11, 1882 in Lake Linden, Michigan, and died September 09, 1963 in Lake Linden, Michigan.

Generation No. 2
